- n. A pancreatic enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of proteins to form smaller polypeptide units.
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. The proteolytic ferment which is the active principle of the pancreatic fluid; pancreatine. It is active in neutral or alkaline solutions, and not only produces peptones from the proteid matter of the food, but further converts a portion of the peptones into leucin and tyrosin.
GNU Webster's 1913
- n. (physiol.) A proteolytic enzyme present in the pancreatic juice. Unlike the pepsin of the gastric juice, it acts in a neutral or alkaline fluid, and not only converts the albuminous matter of the food into soluble peptones, but also, in part, into leucin and tyrosin.
- n. an enzyme of pancreatic origin; catalyzes the hydrolysis of proteins to smaller polypeptide units
- From Greek τρίψιμο ("rubbing") + in. (Wiktionary)
